I received so much great feedback to a question I posted yesterday about my wife’s Honda I figured I’d throw this out there, too. Her Civic is up for it’s recommended 105,000 mile service to the timing belt which I understand usually includes water pump and full fluid change.
She went and got 3 quotes from around town, the first saying it’d “start at $600 for ‘everything’”, the second saying “start at $400 but it depends what’s involved” and the third saying “$600 total with tax for absolutely everything.” A coworker of my hers recommended the last place as well.
So, I am going to call back and ask a few questions to make sure we go with the right shop but are these outrageous prices for North Carolina? I know it’s not a simple service at all…what types of things should I be asking the mechanics?
